“The Place with Panoramic Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a Gorgeous Golf Course” might be a more apt name for the Holiday Inn & Suites Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows, peacefully perched above the Shenandoah Valley and adjacent to the Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club. Although its serene setting makes you feel like you’re far from the city, the hotel is easily accessible from the interstate and other main thoroughfares.
A standout facility in Warren County, the Holiday Inn & Suites Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows & Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club is as appealing for weddings as it is for corporate events. With the golf course as a backdrop, the outdoor ceremony stage is set. The rustic-style clubhouse and well-tended fairways provide a neutral landscape that complements any color scheme and style of wedding, from casual to opulent.
Bookended by the Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club, the ceremony green can be set up two ways: In the first, guests face the fairways which overlook the Blue Ridge Mountains, and serves as a readymade backdrop, framing the couple as they exchange vows. In the second, the ceremony is on the 18th green and guests face the 60 ft waterfall. While the first option doesn’t include a 60 ft waterfall, the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley is your decoration.
The poolside sundeck ceremony site is the hotels’ newest addition and is also available. With private views of the golf course and a waterfall as the backdrop, it offers the perfect ambiance for an evening or daytime wedding.
After the photographer has captured the couple’s post-ceremony smiles and husband-and-wife kisses, the celebration kicks off with the cocktail hour in the hotel’s prefunction area. From here, the view could not be more picturesque: As guests toast the newlyweds, they gaze out past manicured greens into the valley.
At the Holiday Inn & Suites, much attention is given to the cuisine. The chef’s culinary creations are one of the hotel’s main attractions and bear no comparison to “wedding food.” Upscale yet relatable, tasty but not standoffish, the menu options include choices for the easiest-to-please and the pickiest palates.
Whether your event is simply elegant or elegantly simple, the resorts professional Event Planner staff will give it the attention it deserves.
A Surprise in the View and the Waterfall Ceremony Setting!
